Despite the negative stereotypes that certain people promote, immigrants are not all criminals. Most of you have come to this country seeking better opportunities. You contribute to the economy of the United States in many ways. You build our homes, harvest our crops, and help raise our children. Yet you face constant attacks and racism. While you may often feel alone, don’t give up on your dream to better your life. There are many people and organizations that support you.
There are no guarantees that you will obtain legal status. You need to know your rights. Being a hard worker is a skill that benefits this country. Always remember that even undocumented workers are protected by certain federal and state laws. You need a good source of information, that that is what ABC is about.
We want to provide you reliable and updated information on a variety of topics, including immigration. Our goal is not to give you legal advice. Instead, we want to provide you information about your rights and responsibilities to protect yourself and to support your goal to succeed. We want to help you be a valuable member of our society.
